Our society has been interacting with robots for decades; plus, science fiction novels have given them a growing place in popular culture. Consumer robot kits are becoming very popular in K-12 school programs, library makerspaces and other collaborative learning spaces, as well as in people’s homes. In this webinar, we will define what a robot is and what they’re capable of doing; understand the history of robots and robotics; describe the various types of robots, learn how to get started building your own robot, and learn how to create a robotics league in your library!:
